Band To Check Out: HEMPLIFIER

Hemplifier is a Stoner/Doom band from the island of Malta consisting of Emanuel Portelli on guitar & vocals, Bażaż on bass & Dino Mifsud Lepre on drums & samples.

The band released their excellent new single Weedcraft in November 2021 and I was impressed when I heard the track back then. A steady and heavy mix of down tuned Doom/Stoner Metal grooves with a twinge of darkness behind it all.

Hemplifier released a new video for the song in 2021 which you can hear and watch below.

There's also a killer 24 minute LIVE rehearsal video listed below as well.

Their debut album will be released later this year and I will be waiting to hear that album patiently.
